I think the first issue is that it's too broken up into small pieces. Many of the paragraphs can be combined if you started with "Some relevant work experience I have includes..." and then listing your job histories. I think the first link, to your Wordpress site, needs to be at the end, as the parting line, rather… » 7/29/14 5:52pm Today 5:52pm

This is why I get so pissed off when the lifting brahs show up on exercise articles and talk about how stupid running is. I am certainly not positing that running is the end-all be-all for fitness, but telling people "Just lift weights!" is irresponsible. Cardiovascular fitness is irrevocably a thing that is good… » 7/29/14 12:12pm Today 12:12pm

I have seriously been mad about that article all morning. What a steaming pile of pretentious, tone-deaf bullshit it is. And the comments! What in the fuck is with people who are like "I can't BELIEVE anyone would live 30 minutes from a grocery store. Do we live in the Stone Age or something?" Jesus Christ,… » 7/29/14 1:16pm Today 1:16pm

I actually mostly agree with this. I think that's why I enjoy melted "cheese product" like Kraft Singles or Velveeta, but not so much melted "real" cheese like cheddar or swiss. I don't like the oily quality that melting it produces, and cheese product doesn't have that same effect. » 7/28/14 3:29pm Yesterday 3:29pm

Apparently it gets much, much better towards the end of the season. I lasted four episodes and then found that my virulent antipathy towards Skye was just too much of a barrier to my enjoyment of the show. But my sister's boyfriend said the latter half of the season is pretty great. So if you like it now, hopefully… » 7/28/14 3:23pm Yesterday 3:23pm

"Before I go any further, I must point out that none of this ever happens in bad faith. No one has ever told me they love gays as a way to insult me (although people who identify as heterosexual have playfully called me a fag because "oh my god, I have gay friends! It's fine!") but as a way to connect with me." » 7/25/14 12:31pm Friday 12:31pm

Ok, so if I send an invitation to you for my party, but I send it to the wrong address, and then your feelings are hurt about not being invited to my party, I should just say "I'm sorry I hurt your feelings when you didn't get an invite to my party." and offer no explanation about what actually happened? » 7/25/14 11:47am Friday 11:47am

This book honestly made me wonder about how fucked the relationship women in America have with sex is. The stories that people tell about the mountains of inappropriate conversations this book spawned are insane. One friend related how a coworker he barely knew told him that she read it on a Kindle so that she could… » 7/24/14 5:07pm Thursday 5:07pm

I both agree and disagree with your assessment. I'm very much a fan of keeping my head down and getting the fuck out of the locker room. But if people are blow drying their pubes, that's going to result in a lot more loose pubes around the locker room floor, and isn't it to the benefit of everyone if we have the… » 7/24/14 1:35pm Thursday 1:35pm

Has anyone watched "The Fall" (tv series)?

I'm considering watching it on Netflix once I'm done with S2 of Hemlock Grove (which I meant to start last weekend, but then it was nice out), but I had legitimately never even heard of it before everyone started talking about how great Jamie Dornan was it in on the post about the 50 Shades trailer. I watched two… » 7/24/14 11:59am Thursday 11:59am
